Generally, school will be in session if it is felt that the buses can make their routes in relative safety. Even if school is in session, parents are asked to assess their situation and determine whether or not it is safe for their children to attend school on a particular day. If a parent determines not to send their child to school due to deteriorating weather conditions, the absence will be excused.
